I was in the middle of rolling my window down to stick my torso outside.. We went until both rears popped.. Hoping someone got a video!

Man are those stock s13 brakes you've got on the rear? Cuz they look bigger than the front one... time for a front brake upgrade???

Oh and nice canoe rack you got on it ;) can't wait to see picture of it riding in the trails to reach a far away lake :p lol

Drift damage.. My subframe literally cracked in half from that impact.. New one has been acquired and is awaiting installation.

They do not work, trying to figure something out. Z32 rear drum e-brake, a handle out of an alfa romeo, and partially homemade cables. It will most likely fail hard.

how about hydraulic hand brake to solve that issue... but it's probably too easy for you...;) lol

Just joking with you... keep it up, fix that thing and go sling it around corners!

I actually had a hydro e-brake, and theres a good chance I will be reinstalling one in the future.

Subframe is out of the car, I may take this opportunity to get my coilovers rebuilt even though they are only 3 years old.. It is good peace of mind for me.

Currently pricing out a RB26dett with low compression on cylinder 4 and 5 which I plan to bolt to an RB30 block.

Twin turbo or big single?

Single big mofo for hour long lag time and a sonic boom when fully spooled ;)

That would be a monster

So in addition to re-doing my 240sx rear end, I also decided to finally investigate my cooling options.. Heres what happened
  • Gutted and chopped out upper rad support
  • Cut off headlight motors and solid mounted headlights into upright position
  • Built custom containment cage for intercooler and rad (all mounted with ballermatic metric hardware)













Still do to:

  • Custom front bumper rebar to hold bumper skin/crash bar
  • Mount new H4 headlights
  • Plumb some IC pipes
  • New rad hoses (have the lower, need to source an upper that will fit)
  • Clean up some wiring

Got poop?
Every day of my life. Yes

PS. Did you make the roof rack? or is that from something else that you made work?

Yes, griffin 'scirocco' rad.

Bought a replacement motor today, it is an "RB25det".. when in actual fact its an RB20, with an RB25 intake manifold, and t25 turbo, with RB25det spark plug cover and timing cover...

Fucking. Ripped. Off..
